Global Ministries

The United Methodist Church

Connecting the Church in Mission

  • A Solid Financial Foundation for Mission - Generally, anything good comes with some degree of sacrifice or letting go of the present for a better future.
  • Leadership Alongside: Global Coaching and Strategic Initiatives - Local and global mission has been my lifelong passion. Following God’s call has taken me to rural, urban, and suburban settings around the world.
  • Refugees: Our Neighbors - The General Board of Global Ministries and UMCOR will continue ministries along the US-Mexican border, services to refugees in the Middle East, and advocacy for admission of Syrian and Muslim refugees to the U.S.
  • Settling in Seattle - My beliefs and core values were tested greatly during the Global Mission Fellow training—and I knew that was just the beginning.
  • Transformed by the Wesleyan Movement: Global Mission Connections - The Rev. Mande Muyombo shapes the work of the Global Connections unit with the perspective of one who was a direct beneficiary of mission work in the DRC
  • Where Is Home? - Merlin Metsla, a Global Mission Fellow from Estonia serving in Brazil: “In God, my heart can be complete and at home.”
